Yellow is my favorite color! I particularly love the earthy yellow tones. Mustard yellow was one of my wedding colors and the center stone in my engagement ring is a yellow diamond, so I guess you can say that I’m kind of obsessed. Yellow is a happy, vibrant color that reminds me of the sunshine. I tried to take a variety of photographs to represent the color yellow. For my first photograph I used an f 5.6 aperture that produced a shallow depth of field that allowed me to bring the lemon into sharp focus and blur the edges around it. I love natural light and the beauty that it brings to my photographs. In the lemon picture I opened our sliding glass door to let some natural light into our kitchen. I didn’t do any edits to this photograph. For my second photograph I went to the bus yard in Rexburg on a rainy day which produced a very soft light. I used an f 25 aperture on this photo to try and get a large depth of field. My third photograph is of my friend, and gracious model, Katie Bailey. I took this photograph on the same day as the previous bus photo so the light was soft and perfect for portraits. I used an f 5.0 aperture for this photo in order to produce a shallow depth of field, which blurred the background and brought Katie into sharp focus. I boosted the color in Photoshop and used the dodge tool to brighten her eyes slightly. I took my final photo of the balloons in Smith Park this afternoon when the sun was shining because I wanted to let the sun shine through the balloons. I lightened this photo in Photoshop slightly to bring out the color in the front balloons a bit more.
